PHOTOS: What Were These Doing Over North Baldwin?

Reader 'Jacqueline' took these pictures of twin airplanes on Thursday.

Baldwin-Whitehall Patch reader "Jacqueline" recently uploaded a series of pictures to Patch's Pics & Clips gallery of twin airplanes in the skies above north Baldwin Borough.

Jacqueline said that she took the photos on Thursday. Anyone have an idea of what the planes were doing, or where they were headed?

In any event, great photos!

You, too, can add photos and/or videos to our Pics & Clips gallery. Just follow directions on the Pics & Clips page.

I was Army Air Defense and those are definitely C130 Hercules. They are USAF transport planes. They fly in pairs so 1. pilots get their mandatory flight hours and 2. so they can monitor each other during flights in case there's any in flight complications.
